June 25, 1952 ~ November 18, 2017
Richard “Richie” Glynn Hansen, of Aptos, CA passed away peacefully this November. He was born in Oakland, CA to Richard Sr. and Dorothy Hansen. As a child, he taught himself how to play the guitar and as a teen he spent his summers as a camp counselor at Camp Harmon, a place he loved to visit throughout his life.
Among many achievements, he was a world-class business owner and an extraordinary guitarist. He was founder and operator of Hansen Feed and Pet Supply in Watsonville for the past 33 years. His clients who were also his friends will miss him greatly greeting them with his humorous personality into his store.
His hobbies included playing the lead guitar like no body’s business in his band “No Respect” for the last 29 years, Skiing, Flying, coaching Ivan’s baseball teams, and helping animals in need. He was a loving father and partner, he would do anything for his family.
He will be remembered as a humorous and loving man with a carefree “everything is going to be alright” attitude. He always had a joke and a pocketful of ways to bring a smile to your face. He left his charismatic mark on all he came in contact with.
He is survived by his partner in life, Jannette, Daughter Kate, and Sons Daniel, Ivan, and Isaiah. His Parents, Sister Sherry, and his cherished dogs Dustin and Ben precede him in death.
The date of the Memorial Services honoring our beloved Richie has yet to be determined. If you would like more information or would like to attend, please visit Hansen Feed at 2901 Freedom Blvd and add your information to the memorial book and information will be sent to you as it is available.
